The students are working hard as year end approaches. A lot was accomplished this week, but we are still in learning mode and expect the students to remain focused as we finish the year. Ipads will not be coming home after Tuesday, June 18th. Please back them up before Tuesday, as they will be wiped out and reset before the year ends. We will be having a year end celebration with a cribbage tournament and potluck lunch on Wednesday, June 26th. You can sign up to play crib and bring an item here, or email us and we can add you to the document.
On Monday, we are heading to Heritage Park with all Grade 5 students and teachers. Students need to bring a bagged lunch and snack, sunscreen, water bottle, and hat. Please do NOT send spending money with your child as we will not be permitting students to purchase items at the park. Lastly, there are several students whose forms have not been signed digitally. Please have these signed ASAP. Thank you.
Humanities: The students have worked hard this week to complete their ABC Books. Most are done, or are in a good position to finish on Tuesday. Many have been taking their iPads home this week to work on them for homework. If the ABC book was submitted ahead of Tuesday’s due date, you will be able to see it on Seesaw. If the book isn’t on Seesaw then it wasn’t turned in. The assignment is due Tuesday. We also spent time working on the last Amazing Race Tasks. Students completed a reading reflection and counted up the books they read in class this year. In the upcoming weeks we will explore Arctic Art and learn some cursive writing.
Math: This week we explored simple (one-step) algebraic expressions and patterns. We will continue with this next week and students can expect a check-in on Wednesday of next week. We will be wrapping up our math year with a cribbage tournament on the morning of June 26 before the potluck. If you would like to come in (grandparents are welcome too!) and play in our tournament, please drop me an email so we have an idea of numbers. The tournament will go from 9:30-11:00am with a break for recess from 10:20-10:35am.
Science: This week we continued our investigation of mixtures with some videos and did a quick project where the students were tasked with designing tools to separate mixtures. We began to look at the properties of water today with a lab. Next week we will continue this, examining cohesion and surface tension. We will also perform a lab with acids, bases, and a pH indicator.
